Kuwait's Best Bank for Asia 2018
Kuwait Finance House
Kuwait Finance House has many positive attributes that should hold it in good stead for the years to come. It is one of the safest banks in the Middle East, as well as being one of the world’s largest Islamic finance houses, with more than 480 branches.
It is also expanding its presence overseas, most notably in Asia, where it has had a licence to operate in Malaysia since 2005. That business has flourished; today, KFH Malaysia operates 14 branches across the southeast Asian country, offering a host of classic Islamic banking services and catering to the needs of its growing number of retail customers.
It has also been involved in a number of key investment deals over the last decade, most notably the Pavilion shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur.
KFH Malaysia offers a host of innovative Shariah-compliant financial solutions to its customers, from asset and fund management to corporate banking and treasury services, helping to boost two-way investment and trade between Malaysia, the Middle East, and the wider Asia Pacific.
With demand for Islamic banking and financial services growing across Asia, including in Sri Lanka and China, Kuwait Finance House is well placed to expand its business operations in the region.
